Grandma's Wartime Kitchen by Joanne Lamb Hayes

Grandma's Wartime Kitchen: World War II and the Way We Cooked Grandma's Wartime Kitchen: World War II and the Way We Cooked by Joanne Lamb Hayes


My review


rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a book of WWII-era recipes along with remembrances from women who were teenagers and young married women in the 1940s. I picked it up to give me ideas of how to used the produce from my version of a victory garden, but I found that I enjoyed the information about rationing and war-time sacrifices more than the actual recipes. The spirit of cheerfully trying to satisfy your family during the lean times is what I will take away from reading this book.
